Bridgerton meets Harry Potter
It turns out Bridgerton stars Freddie Stroma and Regé-Jean Page also appeared in Harry Potter.
Shocked fans have been taking to social media with their reactions.
Freddie plays Prince Friedrich in the Netflix/ Shondaland series, Bridgerton.
Following its release, fans did some digging and discovered he played Cormac McLaggen in the Harry Potter movies.
His character was extremely annoying, unlike the Prince.

Cormac had a thing for Emma Watson's Hermione and escorted her to Professor Slughorn's Christmas party.
He didn't make a very good impression and Hermione spent the night hiding from him.
Here's a clip from one of his scenes:
Regé-Jean plays the Duke of Hastings in Bridgerton.
He's become somewhat of a heartthrob ever since the show hit our TV screens on Christmas Day.
And it wasn't long before fans recognised him from his minor role in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows.
